The lab and reading activity introduces students to NASA DSN. Students will learn the difficulties experienced by NASA DSN (Deep Space Network) while communicating with a mobile machine residing on another celestial body. Using their cone students will investigate how NASA overcome communication difficulties with a mobile machine residing on another celestial body. This activity takes place during robotics club meeting to introduce students to sound sensor. The activity have been adapted to be used in a physics or a physical science class to teach nature of sound waves-properties of sound waves, sound waves interactions, and sound quality.
